The trailers suggest that Sonam Kapoor is gay and in love with another woman in the movie.

Why is this love story different or progressive?

We need to normalize homosexual relationships in society post decriminalization. Therefore having a mainstream actress play a gay role will reduce the stigma around homosexual relationships largely.

Will the film face backlash for the bold content?

In a country as diverse and sometimes conservative like India, there is a good chance that such content will face a backlash. However, we hope the film goes off without a hitch and is successful. We also hope there are more films like this in Bollywood.
